I have a Coda Comp, not a Coda Sport, but I've found it to not be that heavy. I think that steel's reputation for being heavy is worse than reality, and I haven't had problems with climbing.

The price for the Diamondback seems especially high for what it is, and how old the bike is. I'd definitely try to talk them down on that, or a cheaper price for buying the lot.
